Kaba Gandhi No Delo, literally Kaba Gandhi's house, is the ancestral home of Mahatma Gandhi where he spent his early years of life from 1881-87 AD. It was built in 1880-81 CE by Mahatma Gandhi's father Karamchand Gandhi or Kaba Gandhi, who was the Diwan to the king of Saurashtra. The house was built in Saurashtra style of architecture, with arched gateways and courtyards. The place is must visit for Gandhi followers and avid history lovers during their Rajkot tour.

Kaba Gandhi No Delo has now been converted into a museum and also declared as a national monument which is named 'Gandhi Smriti'. This beautiful building houses many original items related to Mahatma Gandhi like photographs, objects, and his personal belongings which give insight into his childhood days.
